La Palma – Cumbre Vieja volcano route

La Palma – Cumbre Vieja volcano route

On the same day that Fagradalsfjall in Iceland subsided, the Cumbre Vieja volcano on La Palma cracked open a new crater and roared into life on 19 September 2021. But this is no friendly flowing volcano like the gentle Fagradalsfjall. Cumbre Vieja Natural Park offers stunning hiking routes amongst volcanic cones and giant craters. The park is now temporarily closed, for obvious reasons. When this fierce volcano settles down again, the Cumbre Vieja Ruta de los Volcanes (Volcano Route) is one of the finest walks you can do on La Palma.

After more than a year of intense rumbling, the greatest show on Earth began in Iceland in March 2021.

What followed is a series of breathtaking events so incredible it has blown the minds of many people around the world. Multiple craters appeared, erupting simultaneously, until one of them took over and turned into a giant lava geyser. It’s one of the most versatile eruptions the world has ever witnessed.

ThĂłrsmörk – ĂštigönguhöfĂ°i and Hvannárgil canyon

ThĂłrsmörk – ĂštigönguhöfĂ°i and Hvannárgil canyon

ĂštigönguhöfĂ°i is that ridiculously steep mountain you see looming everywhere in ThĂłrsmörk and on the way down from FimmvörĂ°uháls. Climbing it is as challenging as pronouncing its name… The impressive Hvannárgil canyon runs below its slopes and together they form a beautiful circuit, with jaw-dropping views from one end to the other. See how to get there, and combine this walk with Hvannárgil canyon or the lower part of the FimmvörĂ°uháls route. Be prepared for some serious crawling up the rocks on either side!
